Manny Machado moving to Padres' bench Thursday afternoon
San Diego Padres infielder Manny Machado is not in the starting lineup for Thursday afternoon's series finale against right-hander Logan Webb and the San Francisco Giants.
Machado extended his multi-hit streak to four games on Wednesday, but he's getting a breather Thursday afternoon. Ha-Seong Kim is covering third base and bat seventh. Fernando Tatis is dropping into the three-hole in place of Machado.
numberFire’s models project Tatis for 11.8 FanDuel points and he has a $4,200 salary on Thursday’s slate. Per our MLB Heat Map, the Padres have an implied total of 3.7 runs. Webb is registering a 26.6 strikeout percentage and a 6.0 walk percentage this season, with a 3.31 xERA and a .279 xwOBA.
